Low-profile, multi-function control surface
New track select and marker advance parameters
Supports numerous software titles including major DAW programs
n a body proportioned to fit perfectly in front of your laptop computer, the nanoKONTROL2 provides eight channels of the controllers you need to control your music software. The nanoKONTROL2 also features a dedicated transport control section. The buttons have been carefully selected to be useful with your software, ensuring simple and intuitive control. Many software titles – including major DAW programs – are supported, dramatically reducing the need to make complicated connection settings. A knob, fader, and three switches are provided for each of the eight channels, respectively assigned to pan, volume, and solo/mute/record. This arrangement is a real convenience when recording automation for multiple channels. There's also a marker button, making it easy to assign marks at important points in your song for more efficient recording and song production. When using a software synthesizer, you can assign parameters to the desired controllers for easy control. For example you could use the faders to control the ADSR of an envelope generator, and use the knobs to control the filter's cutoff frequency and resonance, etc. The nanoKONTROL2 works with the "Korg Kontrol Editor" software – available free on the Korg website. Load it into your computer, and use it to make detailed customized settings. For example, the minimum and maximum values for each control change message can be specified. Just connect a single USB cable from your computer to the nanoKONTROL2, and you've got a quick and portable music production system. Power and USB-MIDI data travels down the same wire for a clean, efficient workspace.

Pros *Small *durable *lightweight *SUPER FAST ACTION (I put in some fast double bass notes and it responded great!) *lights on octave keys a big plus *sustain is awesome *Great for inputting notes into Sibelius, especially with Virtual Drumline *Great for putting simple ideas into a DAW *Velocity Sensitive aspet of the keys works very well *Plug n Play (I'm on Mac OS X)
Cons *Keys are like laptop keys so you won't be doing super fast keyboard runs on this thing without some awkwardness. The Akai keyboards are a little better for that (but they are super springy) But then again, why would you do super fast runs on a 2 octave travel keyboard?
Overall: This thing is great for note input into Finale/Sibelius and REALLY great for putting in drum beats into your daw. In fact, I like it better than the nanopad. It will capture simple melodic ideas for sequencer use, but don't expect to be ripping out your scales on...
I recieved this in the mail 2 days ago, and i must say i am totally impressed with this unit. I programmed Reaper 3.76 using it's Midi CC message mode, and it took time using the action option in Reaper to manually program the NanoKontrol 2, to use it as the transport and mixer functions of the daw. Once i set it up (i got it programmed to 24 faders and pan knobs, plus all solo/mute/record arm buttons and the full transport as well using 3 out of 16 availiable midi channels! But if you like you can max it out at 8 tracks per midi channel, up to 16 midi channels giving you a max of 128 channels/tracks!) it worked smooth as butter. The pan knobs feel really good and not cheap, the faders have a nice feel of resistance to them like mixing boards do. The buttons light up when they are armed to toggle, i am very impressed with the quality of this unit.
The pros to this unit is that it is definitely a step up in the construction and build quality of this unit compared to the...
I recently purchased this Nanopad for a live setup, making it my third - I own a Nano1 (black), Nano2 (white) and now this Nano2 (black).
First off for the price I think these controllers are quite decent. I know some users report hardware reliability issues, but I haven't run into any problems (yet) with my 3 units. Heck, they are half the price and probably last longer than my "consumable" Macbook battery on which I spend $100 every two years!
Some comparison between the 3 units - out of the box, the Nano1 appears to be slightly more sensitive than the Nano2 (see below for an easy mod you can do to bring up pad sensitivity). Nano1 pads ARE slightly larger.. but you get less of them. Another difference is the pads used in the white and black versions - the black ones feel softer and less sticky, while the white ones slightly more sticky and platic-y, for lack of a better word... I prefer the feel of the black pads myself.
